Questions about Brazil?
Our community of experts can help you find what you’re looking for.


Very few tourist destinations can offer as many options as Brazil travel. Natural beauty, large popular festivities and countless protected environmental reserves are attractions that truly call the attention of foreign tourists when it comes time to choose a destination for their vacation. The weather needs to be taken into consideration when planning a trip to Brazil, as it can have a significant bearing on how you enjoy certain regions of the country. For example, the Amazon region is one of the world's rainiest places, making travel exceedingly difficult between January and May.

From the rainforests in the north to the central marshlands and savanna and the major metropolitan areas of the south, Brazil offers great diversity. Want to try your hand at nearly every kind of sport imaginable? They've got it, golf, diving, rafting, free flight, hiking and even beach volleyball and bird watching. Love the arts, history, culture and nightlife of the city? Look no further than São Paulo, the largest city in the southern hemisphere, where the cuisine is varied and sophisticated, theatre is eclectic, soccer is the favored sport, dancing is almost a must and music is king.

If you have the chance to come to Brazil for Carnaval, of course, Rio de Janeiro is the place to be. Carnaval, taking place during the week prior to Ash Wednesday is the ultimate way to experience Rio, a giant party lasting many days with parades in nearly every corner of the city.
